Way back in the day, I wrote a post about my five must-have items for new moms and looking back now I realize that I forgot to include one of my ultimate favorites for baby, the HALO SleepSack wearable blanket! As a mom one of my biggest concerns with my girls has always been safety. When they were babies we avoided excessive blankets and crib bumpers due to the risk of suffocation but I worried that they wouldn’t be warm enough.
Then I heard about the HALO SleepSack wearable blanket! I loved being able to zip my girls up in their SleepSacks knowing that not only were they snug and warm, they were also safe. Flash forward a few years and the HALO brand now also offer the Swaddle. I love the idea of replacing the receiving blanket swaddle (aka burrito bundle) with a one piece, easy to use Swaddle!
In fact, many hospitals are on board now as well! Introducing the HALO Safer Way to Sleep Initiative:
HALO Innovation’s SleepSack® Swaddle has become the standard for hospital nurseries and parents alike. In fact, 1,000 hospital nurseries use the HALO SleepSack Swaddle instead of blankets through the HALO Safer Way to Sleep Initiative. That is 1.5 million births getting first-hand, in-hospital experience with the HALO SleepSack Swaddle and safe sleep practices! Leading health organizations agree that modeling proper baby care in the hospital is the single biggest influence on how parents care for their baby at home. HALO Innovations also offers free Safe Sleep Practices kits to childbirth educators to help further the cause of SIDS prevention.
